Recently had dinner at Hoplite and the food was outstanding as well as the service. Our meal arrived in a timely manner and was proper temperature. The waitress was very attentive and the everyone there seemed to be having the same type service. I regularly travel to Carolina Beach and this will be on my schedule to visit as well!

The credit card machine was down when I went, so that was a little disappointing. It's a fish and chip place. It was okay and cheap, so why not?

Usually hit this place on the way into town on Thursday nights. Chaz & his crew are friendly, the menu is perfect for bar patrons. The fish & chips are tasty and enough for two people but my favorite is their Shepard's Pie perpared w/ tons of ground lamb..yum! Always have drink specials and sometimes entertainment....very cool place to kick... More

Much better then it looks from outside. Good service and great food along with reasonable prices. Excellent lunch menu selection and good sports bar atmosphere. Friendly staff. We look forward to returning. The homemade chips were a delight and the iced tea was a definite southern treat. Limited parking but worth a stop.

What a great, casual place where the beer was free-flowing and food portions were plentiful. Our server/bartender was very amiable. We were not in the market for a big meal and split a pitcher of beer and an appetizer, but I can’t wait to go back and sample their full menu.

I love a good Irish pub and was quite expecting that when we chose Hoplite Pub and Beer Garden. It seemed more sports bar than pub, and since they have some awesome beers on tap, we settled for the Hoptical Illusion. The food offerings are still classic pub fare: Shepherd's Pie, Corned Beef and Cabbage, Bangers and Mashed. Since we... More

The Hop Lite is a good place to have a beer, but really that is it. The TVs around the bar are the size of old computer monitors. You can only watch main steam TV as the owner obviously won't invest in any sports packages. (I really don't care for going into a bar to watch the weather channel on... More

Had the chance to dine here lay night and me and my group enjoyed ourselves. The Shepherd pie was deemed excellent. I had a turkey club wrap that was very tasty and filled with plenty of meat and cheese. The fish and fries were good as well. "Bangers and mashed (sausage and mashed potatoes) was good. We would return if... More
